Death is a part of life and grieving is a natural process. The death of a significant person can be a devastating loss. Everyone experiences grief differently and there is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve. How we react will be influenced by many different things, including our age and personality, our cultural background and religious beliefs, our previous experiences of bereavement, our circumstances and how we cope with loss.
Cruse is committed to breaking the stigma around grief and ensuring that everyone, no matter how old or young, can access the highest quality support following a bereavement.
For children & young people they offer a Young People’s Helpline and Young People’s website which you can find at www.rd4u.org.uk. Ipswich Cruse has a team of volunteers who are trained to work with children and young people up to the age of 17. Parents, carers, older teenagers and professionals working with children please call our helpline 01473 230888 for information about the service.
Why CRUSE? 2017 was a difficult year for me and I had reason to call upon the services of the Ipswich branch of CRUSE. I was very impressed with their support and to hear that they are one of the few branches across the UK that still work with children & young people. Supporting CRUSE this year, enabkles me to give something back for the support I’ve received and help to ensure that their services continue to be available to those who need them in the future.
